  • Phoenix Union Accredited by AdvancED
       The AdvancED Accreditation External Review team spent three days in Phoenix, February 9-11, to complete their evaluation of the District. The six-person team met and interviewed 216 board members, administrators, teachers, support staff, students, parents, business and community stakeholders, and visited six schools.
       The review concluded with a special board meeting, February 11, in which AdvancED recommended Accreditation for Phoenix Union High School District. Lead evaluator Bill Rivenbark explained that accreditation is not to find out if a “school district is good enough, but rather to see that it is continuously improving.” Using an Index of Educational Quality, or IEQ, evaluating Teaching/Learning Impact; Leadership Capacity and Resource Utilization, Phoenix Union was above the national average in two of the three-Teaching Impact and Leadership Capacity.
       A more detailed report will follow, with recommendations for continuous improvement, and the District has two years to respond to those recommendations in a written report. Accreditation takes place every five years. However, this is the first time the entire District was accredited at one time.
